Volato’s First SmartSky®-Equipped HondaJet Enters Service

Premium connectivity experience to be added to Volato’s HondaJet fleet

Volato Group, Inc. (NYSE American: SOAR) (“Volato”), a leading private aviation company and the largest HondaJet operator in the United States, today announced the first of its HondaJet fleet – and the first HondaJet ever – is now equipped with the award-winning SmartSky LITE™ inflight connectivity system, the only streaming-level connectivity solution for small business aircraft. The installation follows the previously announced agreement to equip the Volato HondaJet fleet with SmartSky LITE™ systems.

“Volato is dedicated to exceeding customer expectations on every flight,” said Matt Liotta, CEO of Volato. “The addition of SmartSky’s next-generation inflight connectivity is a direct response to customer feedback and underscores our commitment to delivering a superior in-flight experience. Early feedback indicates our passengers will be thrilled with the seamless connection and blazing-fast speeds.”

SmartSky’s next-generation Air to Ground (ATG) inflight connectivity network delivers premium performance for every seat on the aircraft that customers describe as “connected freedom” and “as real-time as it could possibly be.” Solutions are available for all sizes of business aircraft with STCs available and in progress for more than 16,000 in-service models.

“We couldn't be happier for Volato and their customers who are now enjoying the benefits of SmartSky when they fly,” said Paul Sameit, Vice President of Fleet and Reseller Accounts for SmartSky.
